Subject: RE: FSGW 2008 Getaway Pix
This was maybe my tenth Getaway. It was the best weather ever! I especially enjoyed reconnecting with an old friend, Jim Bean of The Beans. For a few years, Jim and I worked at the same drug program and sang together alot and even did a few gigs. The Getaway is like a musical reunion. I meet with people who I usually see only once a year at the Getaway and it feels like we're just getting up from our last day last year (I hope that makes sense). I was a bit under the weather physically 'cause I had an infected tooth that wasn't calming down the way it was supposed to with the antibiotic. I actually went to the cabin after dinner on Saturday for a quick nap before the evening concert. It ended up as a full night's sleep! That is a Getaway first for me. I am sorry that I missed so much good music. Thanks to Songster Bob for helping me with the words to "Louise" at the Sunday night concert. It seemed that the audience was singing along and when I forgot the words, it looked like everybody else had forgotten them, too. Very strange. Well, I must go back to work.
